Each guest room will have a personal attendant who helped to serve dinner and attend to you needs. The dinner was good, portion was generous. Onsen was cosy and nice. Place looks very clean and not old at all even though its 50 years old. Onsen had indoor and outdoor. The area is not big, just a standard onsen. Place is not very touristy, more of locals who visit the place. Quiet and cosy, away from city life. Near the residential area which is quiet. After dinner, they help to arrange the futon for us :) Room was VERY BIGGG Breakfast had some repeated dishes and was not as amazing as dinner, but overall still a good stay.
In conjunction with hakodate culinary institute, a kaiseiki dinner was arranged that was impressive. Beautiful seasonal produce was used to produce a memorable experience. The flavours were exquisite as was the dining room. Service was impeccable. I need to show photos to better describe the experience.
Up-market traditional Japanese Inn. I’m sure those who are used to such places will find it more than satisfactory. It provides a very pleasant atmosphere and good facilities eg the Onsen. The rooms are comfortable enough. The substantial meals were traditional Japanese. If you are not used to ryokans, it may come as something of a shock, compared to Western hotels eg the food; the lack of Western-style beds; the requirement to remove one’s shoes in some parts of the hotel; dressing in Japanese garb for dinner. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi only seems to work in the Reception area. The neighbourhood isn’t very inspiring although there are convenience stores nearby.
We had stayed in one high end ryokan before. This compared well. Dinner and breakfast are taken in your own room. In some ways this is good, but in others it is a shock to be woken up half an hour before breakfast for room preparation. The onsen is very nice and alternates bathrooms between men and women each day. The location is remote. So if you're looking for nightlife this isn't the place for you! The attention to detail is very good. Our room (212) could be made into two. The space was very large. There is no individual onsen like we had at our previous high end ryokan, but the room was larger. We found the traditional Japanese breakfast difficult for our palletes - but we had expected this. We took the room towels to the onsen - we could have done with another set, or some in the onsen. Excellent WiFi. …
Excellent ryokan with great kaiseki in the room. And nice jogging in the vicinity. V fresh seafood n delicate flavours. Attentive but not obstrsive service. Enough powerpoints and a private balcony overlooks some apple trees . Wifi in lobby area only
